I also like the Optical view finder in real life over electronic view finders
It's really the voltage maintained under load that's important rather than the nominal cell voltage. MyNi-MH batteries start at about 1.4V on open circuit and finish at about 1.3V.

I've had optical viewfinders on all my previous digicams, as well as the LCD screen, and found them essential in bright or back lighting. I can't understand howfolk manage to point in the right direction when all they can see on the screen is a beautifully lit mirror image of themselves.

However, I love the electronic viewfinder on my new Kodak Z712is, because it gives a pretty good image independent of ambient lighting, and will display all settings information, including a histogram, and EXIF data for troubleshooting afterwards. I've wanted an EVF for years, and at last this one appeared at a price I could afford.

The view finder EVF or optical I agree need one on a camera camnnot take up more room than having it on there?

For Li-ion it's well established. See www.batteryuniversity.com .

He saysif you have 2 Li-ion batteries, use one repeatedly and store the other, 40% charged, in the fridge. Otherwise it'll deteriorate at about the same ratewhether you use it or not. It's the single big drawback of Li-ion.
